Top Things to Know

Local Experts in Tailor-making and Guiding

We are photographers. We understand how important this photo tour is to you. We shall be happy to start at 3 am, climb the mountain at 4:30 am for sunrise, and get down from the sunset mountain at 8 pm.

Our guides use Nikon, Canon and Sony full-frame cameras. We can arrange photo guides according to your taste. We can instruct you on camera settings and compositions.

Some of our guides go to the mountains 100+ times every year, and meet the cormorant fishermen once or twice a week. We know the sunrise angles at different seasons, so we go to different locations to capture the most photogenic moments.

"It's a great mixture of people and landscape... Mercier really know about what you need for taking great shots."
